Is A Lawyer Contacting You After A Car Accident?
Following a motor vehicle collision people typically start receiving a ton of mail from insurance companies. Unfortunately, some of this mail may also be from car accident lawyers soliciting you. Sadly, there are lawyers who actually scour the accident reports from recent car crashes in order to solicit, either on the telephone, letter, or both, potential clients in hopes of drumming up business. Many lawyers, including myself, look with disfavor on this practice because it gives personal injury lawyers a bad name. I have written before on how injury lawyers do not deserve a bad reputation, but certainly these lawyers who solicit in this manner do nothing to elevate the reputation of personal injury lawyers in Massachusetts.
If you receive a letter from a lawyer after a car accident whom you did not contact, be careful when dealing with such a desperate and unscrupulous attorney.
